As the outer are entirely put on display, so we cannot see what is under the sheet metal. Up to now, information about the powertrain has still been unannounced. Nevertheless, based on the fact that the Swift will be a Phase II Eco Car, there is strong possibility that a Dualjet 1.2L 4-cylinder naturally-asprated mill will be in charge of to generate power.
